University of California, Berkeley has chosen to use iTEP for assessing the English language proficiency of its international postdoctoral scholars, visiting scholars, and visiting student researchers. This six-week English Language Program, called English Works for You, will help the visiting scholar community improve their English language skills and streamline communication. In this joint venture between UC Berkeley, The Language Company (TLC), and Boston Educational Services (BES), participants are placed into the appropriate English language proficiency level, based on their score on the iTEP Academic Exam. The participants then receive English language instruction provided by TLC. The iTEP Academic-Plus Exam will then be available to further certify participants’ English levels at the close of the course.
BES is very pleased to be working with UC Berkeley and TLC, and we are proud that iTEP has been selected to be the English language proficiency exam for this program.
